vilisto promises up to 32% savings

vilisto's patented technology enables the efficient heating of buildings. At the heart of the Hamburg-based startup's digital heat management solution are thermostats with integrated presence detection and self-learning algorithms that recognize the usage patterns of individual rooms and automatically optimize the heating behavior of non-residential buildings. This saves up to 32% heating energy and thus makes an important contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. vilisto has already equipped more than 200 customers with a total of around 35,000 buildings.

 A large part of the Series A financing came from Amsterdam-based venture capitalist SET Ventures, which has made a name for itself investing in digital technologies for a carbon-free energy system since 2007. E.R. Capital Holding, a Hamburg-based investment holding company, is the second lead investor in the funding round.
